Proceedings of Conference on Maximizing Productivity Improvement of Hourly Workers.
Fulmer, John L., Ed.
This document summarizes the proceedings of a 2-day labor productivity conference held in Georgia during the summer of 1971. Detailed records and discussions of all presentations given are included as are conclusive findings of conference participants. Some of the major findings agreed upon in terms of productivity and its relationship to workers are that workers are more productive if they are: (1) kept informed, (2) allowed to help set goals, (3) provided with experiences which help to bolster their self-esteem, and (4) have access to company counseling. Given these conditions, workers, in effect, receive first priority in management's planning operations, and reciprocate by giving, in turn, first consideration in their thinking, to the company and its needs.
